Compare 2020 Jeep Cherokee vs 2019 Jeep Cherokee
The popular Jeep Cherokee is currently in its second generation, which was introduced in 2014. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee received a mid-cycle refresh that included an exterior redesign, a more advanced infotainment setup and an optional turbocharged engine. The 2020 Jeep Cherokee arrives at Pollard Jeep with no major changes. Jeep has, however, made some refinements that are subtle but not insignificant. In order to help you explore those tweaks, we present our 2020 Jeep Cherokee vs 2019 Jeep Cherokee comparison, and we encourage you to visit our location to test-drive the new model.
Exterior – 2020 Jeep Cherokee
The exterior has not changed much between 2019 and 2020, and you still have the same five trims available: Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Trailhawk and Overland. The base model has 17-inch wheels and automatic headlamps and is available in nine distinct body colors. Most of the Latitude Plus additions take place in the cabin, but one important exterior change is the power liftgate. The Limited has some badging and exterior accents that distinguish it from the Latitude and Plus. The top-of-the-line Overland adds trim matched to the body color and unique badging. The Trailhawk also unique badging, but it also the most fundamentally different Cherokee in that it comes with more ground clearance, wider wheels, special suspension tuning, skid plates, tow hooks and more. Beyond the unique badging, most Overland equipment is available starting with the base Latitude.
Interior – 2020 Jeep Cherokee near Denver CO
The base Latitude available at your local Jeep dealership serving Boulder Longmont Denver features an infotainment system with a 7.0-inch color HD touchscreen, Bluetooth support, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, two USB connections and a six-speaker sound system. The Latitude Plus upgrades the basic air conditioning to a dual-zone climate control system and adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather upholstery accents, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a leather-wrapped shift knob. The Limited adds leather upholstery throughout as well as the 8.4-inch touchscreen and three additional speakers for the sound system. The Overland features premium leather, wood trim, memory functions for the driver’s seat, front seat ventilation and heated rear seats. The Trailhawk interior is equipped liked the Limited but comes with a special interior trim and has most Overland options available.
Mechanical – Cherokee specs near Denver
Most trims are available as either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The exception is the Trailhawk, which is more off-road-focused and only available with a special AWD system. If you opt for AWD on one of the other trims, you can choose between the base AWD setup and the more advanced Active Drive II system, which also adds a number of off-road-oriented extras.
Powertrain – Jeep Cherokee specs near Denver CO
There are three engines available, and all of them are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.4L four-cylinder that makes 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. One option is a 3.2L V6 that makes 271 hp and 239 lb.-ft. The other option is a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder that offers a tad less hp at 270 but a significant torque upgrade at 295 lb.-ft. The 2.4L and 3.2L engines feature an automatic stop-start system that allows for improved fuel performance.
Safety – 2020 Jeep Cherokee dealer
The IIHS selected the 2019 Jeep Cherokee as a Top Safety Pick, and you should expect nothing less from the 2020 model since there have been no fundamental changes. In fact, now that the Advanced Safety Group is available on the lower trims, the IIHS may bump that rating up to a Top Safety Pick+.
The base Latitude features a 7.0-inch color touchscreen and a rearview camera. The Latitude Plus includes rear parking sensors and a blind-spot detection system with rear cross-path detection. The Limited upgrades the infotainment display to 8.4 inches and adds a larger, more customizable driver information display. The Overland adds an integrated navigation system. Available options include cruise control that adapts to current traffic conditions, forward collision mitigation via automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic parking, automatic wipers, automatic high beams and more.
